Remedial Massage Benefits
It is well known that massage can be beneficial to your health. Our Remedial Massage Therapist Eileen Schwindt-Cornejo has over 16 years experience and provides quality remedial and deep tissue treatments that get results.
Relaxation and a feeling of calm are one of the immediate benefits of massage. The reason for this is that the brain releases endorphins - a brain chemical that promotes relaxation & well being. Other stress forming hormones may be reduced. Studies have shown that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Some typical benefits of massage therapy are:
- Increased well being
- To improve lymphatic drainage
- Improved sports & exercise performance and recovery time
- Improved skin tone
- Reduced muscle tension
- Improved circulation
- Reduction of stress hormones
- Faster healing of soft tissue injuries
- Reduced anxiety & depression

Remedial Massage Consultation Fees
- 1 Hour $100
The practice is increasingly seeking to communicate with our patients via secure electronic means. This would include email / SMS health reminders, on-line appointment bookings, SMS appointment reminders and in the future patient uploading basic health information. To do this we need to ensure we have your email address, mobile phone number and of course your consent.
Booking an appointment
New Patients including women, men and children are welcome at Premier Health Partners. Consultations are by appointment only. Appointments can be booked via telephone (03) 9329 7077, or via our website. In cases of an urgent appointment, please call and we will assist where possible.
If you are unable to attend for a scheduled appointment, please contact us to cancel or change your appointment time. As a courtesy we send out appointment reminders to the mobile number on file and request a minimum of 24 hours notice if you are unable to attend.
We have high demand for appointments and many patients miss out on seeing the doctor of their choice or even obtaining an appointment at all. Late cancellation or failing to attend does not allow the appointment to be offered to someone else seeking treatment.
A fee may be charged for failure to attend or cancellation at short notice, less than 24 hours on the day (NB: this fee does not attract a Medicare rebate).
Complaints & feedback
We respect the right of the patient and ensure all complaints are dealt with in a timely manner.
This practice acknowledges that patient complaints are an important source of customer feedback.
Under the Health Services Act 1987 people with complaints should try to resolve them directly with the health service provider.
If a satisfactory outcome is not achieved then complaint can be directed to the Health Services Commissioner for action by calling 03 8601 5200.

A referral is not required to access the services of our GP’s or Allied Health Professionals. Our Osteopaths do accept GP Care Plans and GP Mental Health Care Plans (Payment is required at the time of service and claim sent through to Medicare for overnight reimbursement).
